  eHarmony Subscriber Wins $900K in Personal Injury Lawsuit
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

People join eHarmony to look for love, not incur lifelong sorrows. One woman was devastated when her search for a husband ended in a devastating diagnosis. This lady from Oregon was getting to know a man that she had met on eHarmony, and things started to progress. Eventually, the couple went out on a couple of dates, and decided to take things to a new level. One night, the middle-aged lady decided to stay the night at her newfound boyfriend's home. It wasn't until after the couple made love to each other that the boyfriend admitted he had been diagnosed with herpes in the past. He assured his new partner that the sexually transmitted disease was dormant, and that she would be fine. He was wrong.

Not long after, this woman was diagnosed with herpes. She took the situation to court, enraged that he had lied to her and inflicted her with this serious ailment. The judge ruled that the man had intentionally engaged her in an activity that resulted in harm, and was therefore guilty of the offenses against him. The jury declared that this woman was only 25 percent responsible for her actions, while her lover was 75 percent responsible. This was because he had not disclosed this important information about his condition to her until after they had sexual relations.

One of the jurors told an Oregon newspaper that the defendant had a responsibility to tell his new fling about his condition.   If you have received compensation from a personal injury lawsuit like this one, you may be waiting for the cash to come in. Unfortunately, large sums of money like this can take months or years to process. You may not see your fortune for a long time. But that doesn't mean you need to wait until then to spend it! With Advance My Lawsuit you can get the money you need right now. Check out our home page for more information.

  Sushi Making Technique Leads to Salmonella Poisoning and Lawsuits
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

A sushi-making technique is now the focus of a personal injury lawsuit for several salmonella victims. Two women in the state of Wisconsin became very ill after eating what they believe to have been several sushi rolls contaminated with Nakaochi Scrape.  There is a technique of making sushi that has been linked to dozens of salmonella cases. A sushi chef will use backmeat that is taken off fish bones and add this to yellowfin tuna sushi rolls. This technique is referred to as the "Nakaochi Scrape" and is supposed to give the rolls more flavor.

As a result of this practice, this recent personal injury lawsuit and several others have been drafted.  One company has already recalled thousands of pounds of yellowfin tuna. The company announced that 59,000 pounds of raw tuna would be recalled.  Consumers who purchased the product will see a label with "Nakaochi Scrape AA" or "AAA".  The victims of salmonella spoke about their physical experiences after consuming the fish meat with infected backscrape material. Victims of salmonella can experience abdominal cramps, diarrhea and fever.  If you are owed a settlement for a lawsuit, learn more about lawsuit funding services offered by Advance My Lawsuit so you can get money immediately.

  Family Sues City for Mentally Ill Woman's Assault
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

The family of a mentally ill woman that was injured as a result of police negligence has been waiting for years for their day in court. A U.S. District Court judge has finally set a court date but it is not until January of next year.  The victim, C.E. of California, was seriously injured while visiting Chicago, Illinois. She was detained by police who later released her into a neighborhood known for its high crime rates. C.E. was sexually assaulted in the neighborhood and then fell out of a seventh-floor window trying to escape her attackers. She sustained permanent injuries for which the family is now asking over $100 million from the city. 

When an appeals court judge allowed the personal injury lawsuit to proceed, legal experts likened this move to confirming that what the police did was negligent. However, there are still questions about which officers should be included in the lawsuit, which could delay it even further.  Waiting on a settlement from a personal injury claim?  Contact Advance My Lawsuit today to discuss our pre-settlement funding options which may allow you to receive funds now instead of later.

  Wrongful Death Lawsuit Dismissed
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

A case in Florida has emotions running on high. The death of a 20-year-old man was blamed on a well-known church, but a recent ruling by a judge dismissed the claim.

The North Carolina man was found to have shot himself in the Florida apartment of his father. He was visiting his father in 2007 when the two argued. It took two years for his mother to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the church, as well as three parishioners, who are believed to have influenced the young man's death.

She claims that the father and two parishioners hid the man's anti-depression medication. Since the church opposes psychiatry as well as any psychiatric medication, the father believed that it was the right thing to do. After reviewing the details of the case, the judge dismissed it altogether. He stated that there was not enough evidence to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the three suspects.

  National League Faces Brain Injury Lawsuits
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

Football is clearly a very physically challenging sport. Some players are now claiming that a national league has taken efforts to hide the more serious dangers that players face.

Anyone who has watched football knows that players can take serious blows to the head. These can lead to concussions and even long-term brain damage. Several players have decided to step forward and share their tales of woe with the court. They claim that the league has hidden serious brain injuries and the dangers of playing altogether.

One of the plaintiffs in the brain injury lawsuit is a former player that participated in 102 games over eight years. During that time, he claims to have suffered multiple concussions that now affect him even though he is off the field. Some of the symptoms of his brain damage include memory loss, sleeplessness and headaches. These could have been prevented had the league taken better care of the players and required different protective gear during games.

Anytime people need money when they are owed a personal injury settlement, they may wish to consider pre-settlement funding so they can get the cash they need quicker.

  Family Could File Wrongful Death Claim for Car Accident Death
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

A man now faces serious charges after the woman that he struck last month was taken off life support.  The 47-year-old victim had been waiting at a bus stop when she was struck by a vehicle. The 33-year-old driver panicked and left the scene of the accident. While EMTs transported the victim to a Phoenix hospital, police started their search for the driver.

It did not take long for the authorities to identify and locate the suspect. He was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident and suspicion of aggravated assault last month. Now that the victim has been taken off of life support, however, he is likely to face additional charges.

Due to the fact that the driver participated in a hit-and-run, the victim's family may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit in the near future for their serious loss.  By filing such a suit, the family could seek damages from the driver.

  Department of Transportation Faces Wrongful Death Suit
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

A family is blaming a Department of Transportation (DOT) for a deadly car accident that took a man's life three years ago and they decided to file a lawsuit.  Testimony for the lawsuit was revealed this week in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a 32-year-old man. The victim had been driving his pickup truck west when he skidded on the road, hitting a guard rail and then a pillar. His internal injuries were too severe to recover from and the man lost his life.

When police opened an investigation into the car accident, the officers found that the DOT had applied a de-icing agent to the roadway shortly before the incident. The DOT thought that there was going to be a heavy freeze that night so several trucks were sent out with de-icing agents. Rather than a freeze, however, weather conditions remained the same and police responded to over 400 accidents that night. One of them was the fatal crash that took the victim's life.

If you filed a wrongful death lawsuit and are waiting on money from your settlement, contact Advance My Lawsuit to inquire about our pre-settlement funding options.  With our services, you can have money in your pocket now instead of waiting.

  Hockey Player Loses Personal Injury Lawsuit
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

A former professional hockey player has lost his personal injury lawsuit following a brain injury that came as a result of a bar fight. The hockey player sued the city municipality and its police department for failing to properly police and monitor the violent behaviors that were a common occurrence at the bar where the incident occurred.

On the night of the attack, the hockey player and his friends were thrown out of the barn and were on their way out when an unidentified attacker hit the hockey player over the head with a barstool. The hockey player has virtually no memory of the events because he claims to have suffered brain damage as a result of the blow.

The hockey player's lawyer noted in court that the bar in question had been reported to the police over 2,400 times over a nine year period for complaints ranging from assaults to suspicious person complaints. The hockey player's lawyer argued that the police did not do enough to alleviate the dangerous situation created at the bar by routine over-serving. The defense claimed that even if the police had cracked down on the bar, there's no proof that they could have prevented the injury suffered by the hockey player. In this case, the judge ruled in favor of the defendant.

  Judge Throws Out Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

A federal judge has thrown out a wrongful death lawsuit that alleged that a county and two building inspectors were to blame for the deaths of a family of four. The judge ruled that the prosecution did not have sufficient evidence to prove that the county or the inspectors played any part in creating the dangerous situation that led to the families' deaths.

The tragic incident occurred in 2008 when two parents and their two young children, a ten-year-old and an eight-year-old, went on vacation in a rental home over Thanksgiving weekend. The family had won the trip in a fundraiser and had not previously been to the house. According to the complaint, the prosecution suspects that someone might have altered a boiler in the house causing a carbon monoxide leak which went undetected by the inspectors. The entire family succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning during their stay and all four died.

 Criminal proceedings are still underway with regards to this case and investigators are trying to determine what exactly happened that led to these tragic deaths.

  Family Files Personal Injury Lawsuit after Amusement Park Accident
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

The family of a young boy seriously injured in a roller coaster ride has finally settled with the owners of the amusement park.

Jurors for the trial were subjected to the gruesome video tape footage of the young boy and his father on the roller coaster ride. They could see how a snapped launch cable comes undone and starts whipping around wildly, eventually latching onto the boy's leg. As a result, his left leg was so severely injured that the 12-year-old boy underwent multiple surgeries in the following months. He is still in physical therapy and is not expected to walk normally again.

The cost of the medical treatments to restore the boy's health have so far amounted to $60,000, and doctors believe that the boy will need to undergo another surgery that is estimated to cost $30,000. The family finally took the case to court and sued the company in a personal injury lawsuit. The amount of the resulting settlement has been sealed.

  General Surgeon Loses Job after Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

After being named in a medical malpractice lawsuit, the general surgeon at a hospital lost his position with the facility.

According to hospital officials, the doctor was recently sent a letter notifying him about the termination.

The doctor is not releasing much information about the incident, but he has noted that a public meeting of the board of managers could reveal more in the upcoming week.

The letter of termination came on the heels of the lawsuit being filed at clerk's office on July 12th. The surgeon general was named along with four other doctors on behalf of the families of two victims. In the lawsuit, the families allege that the doctor, along with a radiologist, emergency room physician and family practitioner, failed to properly assess a patient. As a result, the man lost his life shortly after being treated at the hospital.

  Brain Injury Victim Wins $1.1 Million Settlement
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

The brain injury lawsuit of a good Samaritan came to a close this month after a settlement was finally reached.

Tragedy struck on November 20, 2009, when the victim, a young male, was helping officers with a local police department. The man, who was an employee at a local puppy boutique, went on the roof to help an officer investigate a recent puppy burglary. In total, twenty dogs were stolen from the store and officers were working with employees to track down the person responsible.

Once the victim was on the roof, however, he fell through a skylight, which was 15 feet from the pavement below. As a result of his fall, the victim suffered a fractured clavicle, skull fracture and brain trauma. He now has permanent brain damage that necessitates a daily dosage of anti-seizure medicine for the rest of his life. The lawsuit, filed against the police department and the city, amounted to an award of $1.1 million.

  Parents File Wrongful Death Lawsuit for Loss of Their Son
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

After learning about the death of their son, a mother and father decided to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person and company they believe were responsible for taking his life.

On October 4, 2009, the 17-year-old student was riding the bus when the driver got into an accident. When officers questioned the driver about the accident, he responded that he had looked down briefly, and when his eyes returned to the road, he noticed the bus swerving. As a result, the bus flipped and the teenager was thrown out of a window.  Police say that he later died from the injuries her suffered.  

After conducting a complete investigation, officers and the parents' legal team realized that the driver wasn't qualified to drive the bus. The company had allowed the driver to operate the vehicle even though he didn't have the proper certifications as required by state law. Their lawyers called the death needless and were pleased with the outcome of the lawsuit.

If you will be owed money for a wrongful death lawsuit but are in need of funds now, contact Advance My Lawsuit to inquire about our pre-settlement funding options.  It is possible to get money in advance even though you have not received your settlement payment.

  Medical Malpractice Case Leads to $2.5 Million Settlement
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

Another medical malpractice lawsuit came to a close last week when the jury awarded the victim $2.25 million.

According to the lawsuit, the victim, a California man, underwent surgery at the Mazzocco Ambulatory Surgical Center. What was supposed to be a fairly simple eye surgery turned into a medical disaster when the anesthesiologist allowed him to go too deep under, resulting in anoxic brain injury. The man listed both the anesthesiologist and the medical center for failing to provide a medically safe environment and practices.

The man's lawyers learned that the anesthesiologist had developed a habit of leaving the room, even while patients were still under anesthesia. His legal team believes that when the anesthesiologist left the room, he failed to notice that the victim had had an adverse reaction to the anesthesia, causing him to go to a higher level of sedation.

By the time the trial goes to court, the anesthesiologist will already have settled out of court with the victim.

  Mom Sues Fraternity for Son's Death
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

After losing her son, a mother has decided to take her anger and frustration out on the fraternity he was pledging to.

George Desdunes was pledging to Sigma Alpha Epsilon last year when he was discovered on a couch post-festivities. Although he was brought to the Cayuga Medical Center, Desdunes lost his life. The lawsuit states that Desdunes was given excessive amounts of alcohol, to the point where he became unconscious. Rather than leaving his body alone, the fraternity brothers bound his hands and wrists, and then dumped him on a couch. The medical coroner determined that before he was placed on the couch Desdunes would have required medical attention, which the brothers did not provide.

Now Marie Lourdes Andre wants her son's death to be avenged. She filed the wrongful death lawsuit in the State Supreme Court in Brooklyn.

Three of the brothers were named as defendants in the lawsuit. Edward Williams, Ben Mann and Max Haskin have all been charged with misdemeanors in criminal court.

  Woman Walks Away with $7 Million Settlement
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

One woman walked away with a $7 million settlement this week against the four medical individuals who failed to tell her about the nature of her unborn child's health.

The victim, Run Zhuang, was in her early 40s when she went to the UMass Memorial Medical Center to meet with an obstetrician. At that time she claims that she also met with a geneticist, genetic counselor and nurse practitioner, all of whom failed to advise her of available fetal tests for genetic disorders.

According to her lawyer, Frederic Halstrom, these tests "would have definitely revealed [Zhuang's daughter] severe genetic disorder in-utero and would have [caused] Mrs. Zhuang to elect termination." The hospital is not releasing any specific comments on the final settlement, saying only that "UMass Memorial tries to learn from all cases."

  Family Sues for Son's Alcohol Poisoning
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

When tragedy struck the Wren family two years ago, they decided to strike back with a wrongful death lawsuit

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Jason Wren, who was a freshman at the University of Kansas when he died of alcohol poisoning. Wren had attended a fraternity party hosted by Sigma Alpha Epsilon the night before he was discovered dead in his own bed on March 8, 2009. An autopsy later revealed that his blood-alcohol content was 0.36 percent.

When police interviewed fellow fraternity members, they discovered that nobody had tried to seek medical attention for Wren who was clearly intoxicated and had suffered a head injury. Further details about the settlement have not been released to the public.

  Defendants Agree to Pay Family $3 Million for Wrongful Death
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

Almost eight years after it happened, the Daley administration has agreed to pay $3 million to the family of a young man gunned by Chicago police in 2003 for a wrongful death lawsuit.

If it were not for the YouTube video that went viral after the attack, police officer Alvin Weems might never have admitted to shooting Michael Pleasance without proper cause. The 23-year-old was shot at the CTA Red Line's 95th Street Station where he was just a bystander to a fight that had broken out nearby.

At first the police department told the press that Pleasance had struggled with Weems for control of his gun. Yet when the victim's family sued the city the judge overhearing the case ordered that the CTA video be released by the city. It was only then that the police department finally changed their version of the story.

In the video you can see Pleasance standing on the platform, off to the side, pointing at the fight and apparently trying to speak to Weems. The officer responded by pointing his gun at the young man and shooting him in the face.

Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

This week, news sources reported that eight scaffolding workers who suffered injuries during a February 2009 explosion will be receiving a $16 million lawsuit settlement.  The workers were injured during an accident at WE Energies in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

Allegedly, the victims were erecting scaffolding outside of the coal dust collector at the power facility when the coal dust in the collector ignited and led to nine workers suffering injuries. After 10 days, eight of the workers decided to hire lawyers and filed a lawsuit against Wisconsin Electric Power Co., U.S. Fire Protection Inc. and their mutual insurance companies.

Their lawyers told the public that the workers reached a settlement of $16 million and will no longer have to go through a jury trial which had been scheduled for May.

  Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Settles for $2.5 Million
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

This week, it was announced that the attorneys representing the estate of a four-year-old girl by the name of Rebecca Riley finally settled their medical malpractice claim against the girl's psychiatrist, Dr. Kayoko Kifuji.  The settlement amount reached was $2.5 million and the money was distributed to Rebecca's two siblings who are ages 10 and 15.

Just four years ago, Rebecca died from an overdose after taking psychiatric medication that was prescribed by the doctor. Last year, her parents were both convicted during separate trials for murdering their daughter after they recklessly dispensed medications used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and bipolar illness.

 Although the settlement does not admit to any wrongdoing on the part of Dr. Kifuji, some experts say that the doctor's willingness to pay the settlement amount suggests culpability.  Dr. Kifuji is a child psychiatrist who allegedly agreed to settle the lawsuit in order to spare Rebecca siblings for more heartache.

Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

This week, a lawyer from the Houston area announced that he was able to secure a $1.5 million partial settlement for his client, a 40-year-old male.  His client allegedly suffered an above the knee leg amputation after his limb was crushed by a defective trash compactor.

When the lawyer was not successful with pre-lawsuit negotiations, he filed a claim against his client's employer as well as the owner of the defective trash compactor.  In the lawsuit, it was alleged that the employer failed to provide safe work conditions and that the owner of the compactor was negligent because he delivered a truly defective product that led to the client suffering a serious injury.

Reports indicate that the case against the owner of the defective compactor will go to trial in April.

Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

This month, a second lawsuit against four contractors has been filed in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.  The contractors were responsible for designing and building the Milwaukee County's O'Donnell Park garage.

The same panel killed a 15 year old by the name of Jared Kellner who had been with the Wosinski family during an outing to Summerfest.

In their lawsuit, the family accuses the defendants of concealing or misrepresenting flaws with the design and the installation of the 70 precast panels including the panel that fell on them.  The family of Jared Kellner has filed a similar lawsuit.

  First Lawsuit Filed Against BP PLC for use of Corexit 9500
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

It is reported that the first personal injury lawsuit against Corexit 9500, a chemical dispersant, has been filed in the state of Alabama.  Two residents along the Gulf Coast allege that BP PLC's use of the dispersant has caused people to become sick.

Wright v. BP was filed on July 26th with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama.  In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs say that BP dumped millions of gallons of toxic chemicals into the Gulf of Mexico in response to the oil spill.  The dispersant was supposed to disperse and sink the oil into the ocean. 

The plaintiffs state that BP applied Corexit 9500 by spraying the chemical from airplanes in the middle of the night.  They believe that the chemical caused residents to suffer breathing and gastrointestinal problems, as well as property damage. Over 100 people have visited emergency rooms in Alabama to receive treatment for nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath and extreme headaches.  All of these problems are believed to have stemmed from BP's use of Corexit 9500.

The other defendant listed in the lawsuit is Nalco Co., the manufacturer of Corexit 9500.  The suit is seeking class action status and is requesting both compensatory and punitive damages for the defendants.

In the lawsuit, it is stated that Corexit 9500 has been illegal in the UK since 1998 because it was found to be harmful to the food chain.

At this time, a spokesperson from BP refused to comment on the litigation.

If you are waiting on the outcome of a class action settlement and would like to receive an advance, contact Advance My Lawsuit today to get the funds you need.

  New York Dangerous Product Lawsuit gets $10.8 Million Award
Posted By Advance My Lawsuit

In New York, a lawsuit was filed against the maker of a medical instrument, known as the Mogen clamp, which is used during circumcisions.  In the lawsuit, it is alleged that the instrument caused an infant to lose a portion of his genitalia during a routine circumcision.  Recently, a judge awarded the infant's family $10.8 million in damages against the company.

The attorney representing the plaintiffs, David Llewellyn, has handled and won similar cases in the recent past.  Last year, he won a circumcision case in Fulton Superior Court after he was able to prove that the New York clamp manufacturer's product presented dangers.

In the most recent case, U.S. District Judge Jack B. Weinstein ordered Mogen Circumcision Instruments of New York to pay the plaintiffs $10.8 million in punitive and compensatory damages.  The boy who was injured is now three years of age.

Llewellyn told news sources that the parents, "are extraordinarily distraught and angered that this company tells people it can't happen".

It has been revealed that Mogen is already in default on a $7.5 million judgment from 2007 that was ordered in the state of Massachusetts and is going out of business.
